After being called on the carpet for her misleading description of a trial lawyer as a “staunch Republican” — despite the fact that he had donated to Democrats over Republicans by a margin of nearly 8 to 1 — Jennifer Hunter first doubled down . . . and now doubles down again.
Namely, she says today that it was a “truthful statement” that trial lawyer Jim Ronca is a “staunch Republican” who “was so fed up by the Bush White House that he was going to support and give money to Democrats.” Those who disagreed, based on his overwhelming pattern of contributions to Democrats, do not care about the truth; rather, Hunter says, they are simply “demagogic Republicans.”
I think that’s “quadrupling down.”
I believe I finally understand her point. In Ms. Hunter’s dictionary, “staunch” is defined as “occasional.”
Under this definition, Ms. Hunter is a staunch truth-teller.
It’s so entertaining to find yet another Big Media journalist who never digs so deep as when she’s digging herself a hole.
Thanks to several readers.
